Will never subscribe to a calendar app. Things have gotten out of hand in terms of insanity. Sorry but no. Never.

Every app has turned into a subscription service nowadays.

I wouldn't subscribe to this app even if the subscription cost a penny per decade. The stock calendar app is free and perfectly capable.

Does this thing permit scheduling something for “the day after never”? Because that’s precisely the date when I’m planning to start paying a monthly fee to use a calendar app.

The benefit to subscribing to a calendar app is that you never miss payments.

I was longterm user of Fantastical until that day they released the subscription model. Since that I use Calendar 366 app - Very similar to Fantastical, one time purchase and of course standalone Mac OS app. Give it a try :)
